Has anyone been able to get dts to work (using spdif) through the internal player?

it seems to me, it's always falling into DD instead of DTS. I can play the same file in vlc (outside of myth) and it'll use dts.

perfect, this sounds to be exactly the same problem I'm having.

I'm unsure where to find libs/libmythtv/avformatdecoder.cpp. from the root, where is it located? I tried find, didn't seem to find the file for me.

Hi,

You'll need to download the source for mythtv, modify the file mentioned and then compile and install the updated package. That sounds like a lot of work and it is.

Maybe have a look to see if the auto builds already contain this patch. If yes just start using them.

Sorry I can't look an further at the moment as I'm stuck in the office and the work firewall seems to block almost everything to do with video or linux.

Regards

I do have the auto builds turned on (.23 non testing). I just updated last night. I'm guessing the fix isn't in those, which is quite unfortunate for me :(

I'm not feeling confident enough to modify/compile mythtv.

Thanks for your help.

can anyone confirm if this has been fixed in 10.10?

10.10 is NOT a mythtv version.

yes... I know that. I thought 10.10 was using .24, which I thought was the most current release. all apologies.

if you read the thread i pointed to, you will see it is fixed in what was then trunk. So it should be in 0.24, you can get 0.24-fixes (which is currently pre-release (RC)) using mythbuntu-repos autobuilds.

If you want to know for sure that it is fixed, i sugest the -users mailing list. Jean-Yves hangs out there and seems to be lead audio developer at present (as you wil see in the thread)
